What are we about?
All our walks are now shown on the National Ramblers website complete with maps showing the start point. Click The Ramblers link to give you our list of our walks on their site, click on the Brief Description of any that you are interested in, be amazed! They have spent a good deal of time and money making this a very informative and useful site.
Here in Kent we belong to the Kent Area of the Ramblers and we have a website that shows the activities of all the rambling groups in Kent affiliated to Ramblers. If you are interested in what else goes on in Kent or want details of other Kent groups do take look at the Kent Area website.
All this looking at websites is all well and good but we are about getting you out walking with Bromley Ramblers. It's good fun, it's exercise and it's supposed to be good for us. If you have any interest at all why not come along to an easier, shorter (3-5 mile) walk and introduce yourself. We will do our best to make you welcome. Choose a dry day and all you really need is a pair of stout, comfortable boots, shoes or even trainers that you don't mind getting a bit muddy. If you click on the Walk Programme button on the left you will see the walks we are going to do and click on Beginners for more details of what to expect. I promise there will be lots of people there, not just a few athletic women or potbellied men with beards and sandals!
The network of footpaths and bridleways that we walk
developed over centuries linking hamlets, farms and fields to markets,
churches and of course pubs! If we didn't walk them they would
eventually disappear and The Ramblers campaigns to keep them open. You get a completely different view of the countryside
to that you which get from inside a car. We have well over
and you will see that we walk all over South East
England, although primarily in Kent and Sussex.
Walk Programme Whoopsies!
Walk Programme Whoopsies!
One of the downsides of printing the Programme up to 4 months in advance is that things can change. Leaders knees give out, paths flood, car parks disappear and yes we do actually get things wrong sometimes. We update this website and the Ramblers one but if you wish to be alerted to changes etc by email put your email address here.
Bromley Ramblers has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This new partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.
Ramblers Worldwide Holidays operate group walking holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified walks leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting like minded people and of course, some fantastic walking. Holidays are graded in terms of difficulty, and there is a full range from sightseeing right up to hut-to-hut mountain treks. Take a look at their website on www.ramblersholidays.co.uk or give them a call on 01707 331133 for more details or to order a brochure.
Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
